October 5, 2007 English 101JB F. 5:30-8:30 Stephen King has simple values, not unlike you and me. His essay, “A door… you are willing to shut” tells us about some of his values and how he abides by them. Some of them being setting and accomplishing goals, staying focused and avoiding distractions, and keeping things simple. Without goals how else would you evolve as a person? By keeping focused and keeping things simple you will be able to achieve a lot more than you thought. As early as elementary school, we are taught that in order to better ourselves we need to set goals. Naturally, you are expected to attain your goals. Of course this isn’t as easy as 1-2-3. You have to start out small. For example, if you want to run a marathon, you don’t just suit up on race day and run the twenty six miles. You would probably drop out by the fifth mile. So, instead you set out a reasonable goal of maybe, running one or two miles at first. From there you can build up your endurance.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
